Emilie Agreste is a former Peacock Miraculous holder.

Emilie, I miss you every moment. But one day, I will get the Miraculous of Ladybug and Cat Noir, repair the mistakes of the past, and make sure you return to us.

Gabriel, "Cat Blanc"

Emilie Agreste (née Graham de Vanily) was the leading actress in the film Solitude. She is also the wife of Gabriel Agreste, the mother of Adrien Agreste, the twin sister of Amelie Graham de Vanily and maternal aunt of Félix Graham de Vanily.

In several episodes and other canon sources, Emilie has been heavily implied to be a former Peacock Miraculous holder, with the Miraculous' former damaged nature being the cause of her coma. Currently, she is in Gabriel's repository, where she is being kept in a glass coffin.

Appearance

Physical appearance

Emilie is a thin and fair-skinned woman who greatly resembles her son. She has a small nose, a pointy chin, thin lips, upturned green eyes, thin eyebrows, and blond hair which she keeps in a side ponytail.

Civilian attire

Emilie wears a black blouse with a light pink jacket worn over it. On the coat, a brooch shaped like a flower with five petals with a pearl in the center can be seen. She also wears light pink business pants and black high heel shoes.

Personality

Not much is known about Emilie, except she is stated to be kindhearted and loving towards her family. Proven when they took up the use of the jewels the first thing they promised was to keep their son out of harms way. According to Gabriel, she was stubborn and headstrong when it came to other people's safety meaning she also cared and loved other people, similar to Adrien. Gabriel also says in the episode "Simon Says" that Emilie was "way too overly dramatic".

Since Gabriel called the use of the Peacock Miraculous "their" mistake, it's implied that Emilie knew that the jewel was damaged too. However, for some unknown reason she continued the use of the jewel either with or without her husband's knowledge, showing her recklessness, rebelliousness and determination like her son.

Abilities

As a civilian

Emilie is a professional actress, implying considerable skill in this field. After doing a duet with Plagg on the piano Adrien mentions in "Feast", that she always made him laugh like that meaning they use to do duets together implying at some point she learned to play the piano too. And she used to teach her son.

As a Miraculous holder

If this past Peacock Miraculous holder had the same powers as the recent holder (Mayura), Emilie had enhanced physical abilities, a hand fan as her tool, and Amokization as her superpower, allowing her to fashion sentimonsters from the emotions of herself or others.

Trivia

Adrien looking at the painting of Emile Agreste in Gabriel's atelier.

  • The image of her used as Adrien's computer background is actually a real-life photo of voice actress Tara Strong, with the top changed from magenta to blue and Emilie's face edited over Tara's face.[2]
    • The writers admitted at an event that they modeled Emilie's design on Tara, whom they favor because of her work.[3]
    • At Tara Strong's 2016 Q&A panel at Indy Popcon, a fan asked her if she was aware of the photo resembling her. Though she agreed there were definite similarities, she had no knowledge of it until then. [4][5]
  • There is a portrait of her in Gabriel's atelier in the Agreste mansion. It resembles Gustav Klimt's Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I, commonly known as The Woman in Gold or The Lady in Gold.
    • Behind the painting, there is a secret safe, in which Gabriel keeps the Peacock Miraculous and a booklet that reads "TIBET" in big green letters in front of a picture of her.
    • "The Collector" reveals that the painting has hidden buttons that open the secret entrance to Hawk Moth's lair.
  • In "Party Crasher", Emilie has a collection of old records that Adrien keeps in his room.
  • "Gorizilla" reveals that because of the emotional attachment that Gabriel has to the film Solitude due to Emilie's role in it, he forbade his son from watching it, though he later changed his mind.
  • A picture of her is inside of the Butterfly Miraculous.
  • In Season 2, it's revealed that Gabriel wants the Ladybug and Cat Miraculous to bring Emilie back from her endless sleep. He confirms this in "Cat Blanc".
  • "A Christmas Special" reveals that she disappeared some time in the last year, as it is Adrien's first Christmas without her.
  • A future episode will track the relationship between Emilie and Gabriel.[6]
  • In the Miraculous Secrets webisode "Gabriel", Gabriel says he and Emilie used the Peacock Miraculous and if they hadn't she "wouldn't be where [she] is now", revealing that the Miraculous is responsible for her current condition.
    • It remains unknown as to why and how Emilie used the Peacock Miraculous enough to render her comatose.
  • On Twitter, Thomas stated that Emilie's "death" is public knowledge and there was a funeral for her.[7]
